Re: [K12OSN] network cdrom emulator



I found a way to make the shortcut mount the correct CD ISO "on the fly" when they launch the program they want to run and dismount it when they let go of it.

I never heard of DaemonTools when I did that. I did it with what came with samba a linux.

I will have to go revisit the config files for that server (been a year or two since that was used) but if I find it, I'll let you know.

We'd like to get a network cdrom emulator on the network to emulate

our network that will allow us to do that?

Linux, Windows, anything that can act as a fileserver.
I use a small utility on the Windows clients, called DaemonTools. It
acts as a  physical, local cdrom/dvd drive and mounts ISO (and a
swathe of other  cd-image formats) images from a central fileserver.
To create the cd-images I use Nero Express, Graveman or mkisofs.

I do this with my house setup.  (I have LTSP running in the home).  1 of
my clients is a "dual boot" LTSP client or Windows 98 box.  The windows
98 box is so my kids can play their PC kids games.

I have a SAMBA share that holds all the CD-ROM isos.  The windows boxes
mount it as M: . Then they have a number of shortcuts on the desktop
that mount the ISO via DaemonTools.  If you need some help/configs just
email me.
